A new series of Canna at the garden centre this year are Cannova Cannas. From the moment you buy them until the first frost of fall, you will enjoy continuous blooms. Their long flowers shoot out of the plant and burst open with bright colours. Like other Canna varieties, their foliage are thick banana-like leaves, making it the perfect thriller in containers or landscapes.
These exotic flowers bring the tropical look and feel to our cooler climate.
For more flower power you can clip off old blooms, to promote new growth and shoots. In late fall, cut back your Canna, leaving just the main stock and store it in a frost-free location during the Winter months. Next Spring you will have a well established Canna!
In Thailand, flowering Canna plants are a traditional gift for Father’s Day!!
